Regions

We live in the Pacific Northwest, and we have been gratified to see so many great wines start to come out of this region.  My wife grew up visiting family in Yamhill, Oregon, and the site of her grandparents former blackberry farm is now home to a vineyard.  We often visit winemaker friends in Walla Walla, Washington, and Christina used to do PR for the Yakima Valley Wine Association and its winemakers and wine growers.

We are not partial to any one region – except perhaps Bordeaux – instead we like to make a game out of guessing the region on taste characteristics alone, when presented with the blind opportunity.

Regardless of region, we are always on the lookout for great values, amazing experiences and wines that suit our particular palate.  We’ll share what we find and hope you’ll do the same.

    Bob, Thought you would like to know that I am off to my SECOND official wine tasting event tomorrow night. Trying to bone up on my wine knowledge before the next Tucson!! Nice job on the blog, entertaining and informative.
    Best Regards, Greg

    1. Greg – Glad to hear, the key is to taste as much as you can. Be careful, it is a slippery slope. By the time Tucson gets here, you won’t be buying the $15 – $25 bottles any more. We were at a Burgundy tasting about three weeks ago with 135-140 different wines. We tasted about 110 of them in four hours, but we were spitting of course. I hope you had fun at your tasting. What kind of wine were you tasting?

      Cheers, Bob
